UAS based survey at river Iller within the "Agilie Iller" project to assess potentiel measures for reestablishing a dynamic riverbed.
Presenting: Assessing hydraulic and morphological conditions using UAS
Survey as base for environmental flow assessment with hydraulic and habitat modelling approach.
UAS based bathymetric reconstruction of 3 different reaches at river Taigdalselva for 2D hydraulic numerical modelling.
In September 2016 HyDroneS was with I AM HYDRO as sponsor and exhibitor present at the International Symposium on River Sedimentation 2016 in Stuttgart. We also contributed to the symposium with our presentation: "UAV based determination of grain size distribution at river Jachen, Germany" zur Konferenz beigetragen.
Our latest survey from September 2016, was in the north of the Finnmark in Norway. We focused on the investigation of spawning gravel and spawning sites for Atlantic salmon (salmo salar) with a UAV.
In July 2016 we conducted a six day course for a bhutanese delegation in surveying rivers and data assessment for habitat modeling. A special focus was set on the use of drones for such surveys. This course was the basis for a big survey in Bhutan which we will attend in November 2016.
In July 2016 we were on the "Small uas for environmental research conference" in Worcester, UK. Approx. 120 scientists, engineers and users from research, state departments and the private sector had interesting talks on projects with UAVs in the field of environmental science. We participated with our contribution "three years applied surveying of riverine system with small uas for environmental engineering: a field report from Europe & Southeast Asia" on it.
In April 2016 we documented renaturation measures at river Havel in an area called Havelland. The area is a higly protected landscape and wildlife sanctuary and located in two districts of Germany, between an airport and a military training ground, which made it quite challanging to get a permission.
17.000 aerial pictures were taken for a very high resolution SfM model of the medieval town Dornstetten. Processing took place at University of Aplied Science Karlsruhe.
Hands on training on UAS based survey methods within the E-Flow project for the National Environmental Commission (NEC) Bhutan.
Technology transfer within the GIZ EcoSWAT development aid project on the integration of UAS int Thai water management. Participants have been trained on UAS and different survey equipment as well as post processing.
UAS based substarte mapping at river Lech
Mapping 12 km of river Glatt (Southwest Germany) for mapping purposes as a feasibility study within a study on the state of ecological impacts within Baden-Württemberg.
Calculation of NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) and the RNVI (River Normalized Vegetation Index at river Lech Bavaria.
Presentation "Tales from the field, state of the art and future development" at the workshop for UAS application to survey waterbodies. Center for Environmental Desing and Renewabel Energy (CEDREN) Norway.
